Irish baitfishing ?

Well after watching poor Tom being spooled by a shark ( sorry still like to watch the face for the oh my god look ) we had to get more fresh bait. Despite being one of our poorest weeks for weather there is always some where to fish in the Florida Keys and we were finding plenty of barracuda a great shark bait. The only problem I had with plan B was getting the anglers to stop baitfishing ! It seems to me that the Irish have taken to this light lure fishing big style and when you get a fish nearly ever chuck it all works. In fact some of the baits were over 10 lbs nice on any lure rod and these guys had plenty of rods.

Well the tough week came to an all to early end and yes we had tarpon to the boat but many boxes had not been ticked due to the weather so I think an other fishing holiday will be booked soon. Last morning and you guessed right light lure fishing and just to say goodbye to the Florida Keys we saw a large school of small jacks and had a triple header on the very last chuck. Nice to fish with you guys and look forwards to doing it again but how about a bit of the Irish luck with the weather ?
